Non-urgent advice: Important service update

In line with national guidance we have had to reassess how we routinely review our patients. As a continually growing service who see patients for their whole lifetime, we need to focus our services where it is most needed and make sure we have the capacity to see you if you need an appointment. We hope that this change will be of benefit to you by empowering you to request care when you need it and avoid unnecessary visits.

Please visit the implanted patients ongoing care page for information on service changes applicable to you, and details of what to do if you/your child have any concerns with your hearing.
